Summary: I have to say that my first impressions are that this is an awesome monitor. I don't use that word much. Now it's up and running I am surprised by how much more screen there now is, it's huge. The colours are really vivid, very noticeably more than my old LCD. White is pure white and the contrast is lovely. Gradients and contrasting blacks and greys look impressive.
Pros: Every thing works as it described. Clear image and text at 2560x1080 which is I'm using.
Cons: The display port does not work for me. when I hooked my laptop with HP monitor 1900x1080, it works without any problem. I understand that AOC has two display ports, one for in and the other for out. You need set the display port as the one that is active to use it. But, it did not work for me.
Summary: Once calibrated, the AOC Q2770QPU offered the best colour accuracy out of any semi-glossy sub $1000.00 monitor I have ever seen, however, the perceived black levels weren't as good as the Crossover 2755AMG which uses Plasma Deposition Coating. The flaws in this monitor are few in number, and minor in scale. In my opinion, the AOC Q2770QPU is the best affordable, matte (semi-glossy), multi-input 27" 2560x1440 AHVA/IPS/PLS monitor available.
Pros: +High quality plastic used for the stand and casing +Fully adjustable stand +Smart Design - Blacks look deep compared to the matte grey, plastic bezel +Displayport, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, VGA and 4x USB 3.0 Ports +Does not use LED PWM Dimming or is Flicker Free +Semi-Glossy coating is nearly grain free and handles reflections well +Fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot ghosting +Suitable for dark and bright enviroments (75.5-306.4cdm/2 brightness range) +Exce...
Cons: -Preset yellow tint -Panel lottery, there is a chance that you may receive a completely glow free Samsung-PLS panel versus one with some corner glow as others have described (mine was completely glow free for reference) -Poor out of the box performance until calibrated -Gamma modes have unusual values
Summary: This is an outstanding monitor with very high resolution, lots of connection facilities, including USB ports, with built-in speakers and adjustable height and tilt. We use it for viewing and editing detailed engineering drawings. It displayes everything sharp and crisp, indluding text. It really excels when displaying videos. The first one we received lacked some ancillaries that were supposed to be in the box.
Excerpt: I waited a couple of months after purchasing this to write a review because I thought I'd see something about it I didn't like. Hasn't happened yet! I use this for business and don't use it for gaming at all. For business use it is great. Once I got everything adjusted like I wanted it I haven't had to touch it. I use the display port to connect to my port replicator for my laptop and it works flawlessly. The screen is clear and there's a lot of real estate for programs.
Summary: I have sensitive eyes. I can't stand LED flickering, even at very high frequencies. Therefore, when shopping for a new monitor, my choice was limited to flicker-free models. I started with Benq GW2760HS (27", *VA panel, Full HD resolution). That was a great monitor; top product for the money. After a while, I got tired of the large pixels, and switched to Benq BL2411PT (24", 16:10, pseudo-8-bit IPS panel, 1600:1200). Now THAT was a treat!
Summary: After much research I finally decided to get this monitor for its 70 % size increase over 1080p, and its very highly rated color accuracy and build quality. Pros It has a very good color range. It has very good pixel response times. From 3 feet away I can't distinguish between pixels, so the density was pretty good. Contrast ratio seems subjectively good also. The size is immersive. Gaming response time is good.
Not Plug and Play, Have to be Technical to figure it out

Summary: I returned this and bought ASUS PB278Q 27-Inch WQHD LED-lit. So glad I did here is why. Both Panels are exactly the same but features are different. I don't need or use USB from my monitor. I have a PC for that. Menu on ASUS is much easier to work with and intuitive. 1st: The buttons on the Asus there are 7 buttons to customize and adjust your monitor AOC has 5. Two extra make it easier to adjust.
Summary: Extremely fine resolution that translates into a huge monitor in the space. Much bigger impression then the 23" they replaced, and I'm playing Civ V and Fallout New Vegas without problems. Highly recommended, and what a price!
